made in connection with tuesday's deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. we're in tripoli this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. officials have arrested suspects and have several more under surveillance across the eastern part of the country. they're not shedding any light as to who these individuals are and what role they may have played in the deadly attack. what we do know is that according to libyan officials, some of the individuals have been taken into custody after footage emerged at the protests which the officials hearsay was essentially the cover that was exploited by militant groups. they are convinced so far that this was not simply an outburst or spontaneous outburst of anger against an anti-islamic film that appeared in the u.s. but rather a coordinated planned attack exploited by a militant group perhaps affiliated with al qaeda in the eastern part of libya. >> all right. he's in tripoli for us with the latest. thank you. it's 7:03 now. here's david. >> savannah, thank you. the violent anti-american demonstrations are not letting up in
